#111 Addressing Global Supply Chain Risk Through Software Solutions with Bindiya Vakil

June 9, 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed just how interconnected, yet fragile the global supply
chain truly is. One company, Resilinc, has been addressing risk in the global supply chain
through a clear vision and innovative software, and its CEO Bindiya Vakil, joins us today. Having come from the world of sourcing and procurement in high-tech, Bindiya felt the industry was very reactive and always at the mercy of suppliers and events. In this episode, we learn more about what Resilinc is doing to increase visibility and understand supply chain
interdependencies. We also learn about how they gather and leverage data and disseminate it to clients to inform decision-making in the face of sudden shifts, from factory fires to natural disasters. They hope to help companies become more resilient and not to design suppliers out, but instead enable businesses to be proactive, predictive, and have some control over the outcomes of events. Along with this, we also learn more about Resilinc’s natural language processing capabilities, the importance of data for lean manufacturing, and more. Be sure to tune in today!
